Enhanced Points
of Interest

Provider: DMTI Spatial Inc.

The Enhanced Points of Interest (EPOI) file is a national database of over 1 million Canadian business and recreational points of interest. Engineered using CanMap Streetfiles, each EPOI has been accurately geocoded and precisely placed; two criteria that are fundamental to any successful location sensitive service.

This location enriched point of interest database allows users to see and analyze selected point of interest data in a given geographic area, enabling applications such as wireless location-based services (LBS), Web, Telematics, planning, real estate multiple listing services (MLS), retail site analysis, competitive and market research, intelligent routing, sales territory analysis, business and tourism.

  • Coordinate location (X, Y)

  • Business or recreational names address, city, province, postal code, telephone number
  • Common Address Flag (CAF) allowing users to identify records with identical addresses
